One problem with the phrase “Black Lives Matter” is the idea that if a life isn’t black…it doesn’t matter. Which is a problem for people who think literally. Or not at all.
Take Carlos Anthony Hollins, a 20 year old black man in La Plata, Maryland, who posted this message to his Twitter account, which has since been suspended:
“IM NOT GONNA STAND FOR THIS NO. MORE. TONIGHT WE PURGE ! KILL ALL THE WHITE PPL IN THE TOWN OF LAPLATA. #BLACKLIVESMATTER [sic].”
Now, ignoring the glaring grammatical errors for a moment, the fact remains; Carlos Anthony Hollins is a racist. And an idiot. Why? Because in the mind of Hollins, all white people in his town deserve to die for no other reason than they’re white. Or the way they wrap their sweaters around their shoulders. Oh, white people! Has Hollins’ mind been tainted by the racial-stoking agenda of the leftist media and #BlackLivesMatter activism? Undoubtedly. But most of the people in #BlackLivesMatter aren’t calling for a purge of white people in their respective towns. Probably because some of their leaders are white. So…there’s that.
In a rage that can only be expressed adequately in ALL CAPS, the estimable Carlos Anthony Collins wanted to take matters into his own hands…but made the fatal error of bragging about his master plan first. On Twitter. Where all master plans are hatched. Barring the heinous racism, the fact that he’s Dr. Evil incarnate is still pretty damn funny. Oh and the model of the Collins plan? Stolen from the movie The Purge. No word yet on whether Collins sat in his arm chair stroking the head of his cat while viewing the film.
Evil genius? Not so much. Total moron? Yeah…
Police were able to identify Hollins and took him into custody without incident. He was charged with threats of mass violence. Since the incident, the La Plata Police Department added extra patrol officers to help protect the public in case of an incident.
The takeaway? Racism is equal opportunity. It strikes even the stupidest among us. Those stupid people come in all different colors. Also, evil geniuses might want to avoid the Twitters.. #MuHaHaHa
